Re: Storing Steam games on an external drive

I do it on my laptop (internal SSD, external 1TB USB3). It works fine.

Good to know, can you transfer your gaming library between your laptop and desktop?

I believe there may be mods or programs that do that, I just have the whole application stored on my external.

Is the USB3 install for your laptop only?

Yeah. It only has space for one internal drive, so I opted for a 120GB SSD boot drive, and slide the 1TB external into a space in the laptop cooler beneath the laptop, so I can still pick the whole thing up and move it as one piece of equipment.

When I'm on the road, I have this setup ritual where I connect the USB hub, the laptop cooler, HDD inside the cooler, the mouse, the headphones, and the tether to my Droid so I get free internet.

If we lose this freedom of ours, history will record with the greatest astonishment, those who had the most to lose, did the least to prevent its happening.

That's an excellent setup, I think I'm going to emulate a least some parts of it.
